Camping 2013 - Natural Bridges

Originally we had planned to camp at Natural Bridges National Monument for one night, but I got all nervous that there wouldn't be a spot in the middle of Memorial Day weekend. Probably would not have gotten one in the park, but there were plenty of BLM spots all around. That's okay. We'll go back sometime since it is supposed to be one of the darkest places in America. No light pollution. And I'm kinda on a constellation kick right now.

We spent a few hours, did a short hike, and got our Junior Ranger badges. I didn't realize until this visit that there is a difference between an arch and a bridge (arches are formed by wind, bridges by water).

Jack was pretty sure that
 these are mountain lion tracks! 
There were petroglyphs by this bridge,
but can't really see them in the photo

Hot day for hiking
